Oakridge Public Schools Hires New Program Manager For GSRP

Oakridge Superintendent, Tom Livezey, is pleased to introduce Trisha Lowry as our new Project Manager for the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) through Oakridge Public Schools.

Lowry attended Oakridge Public Schools for many years, before transferring and graduating from Reeths-Puffer High School. Lowry holds an Associate’s Degree in Arts and Childhood Development. She has been a premiere substitute teacher at the elementary level for 4 years, ran a licensed daycare for 11 years, taught preschool for 3 years and has been the activity coordinator for an after-school program.

“I’m excited to join the Oakridge team, and help build the bridge from early childhood to lower elementary,” says Lowry. “I think it’s important to help prepare students for a successful future at Oakridge Public Schools, even at a young age.”

The Great Start Readiness Program is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children. Oakridge Public Schools is one of fourteen districts in Muskegon County to offer the program to the community.

“We are thrilled to welcome Trisha to our team,” says Livezey. “Trisha has been an active member of the local community as well as our school district for many years. We know that her experience and love for Oakridge will be very beneficial to our youngest learners.”
